Wales Cae Mabon, Forage Class/Drum Ceremony Sept 30- Oct 1
Saturday Oct 7 and Sun Oct 8
An amanita muscaria forage and discussion by Dreamer, a make lab by Courtney, cooking amanita, ID and ethical foraging, photo ops, questions, a book signing and a wildcrafted headpiece. Lots of activities are on our agenda!
An evening of speakers on the topic of Amanita muscaria.
I go through citations, scholarly research and science about ibotenic acid and muscimol in the amanita muscaria mushroom, or fly agaric including soma, ambrosia, food of the gods. Learn how to microdose, macrodose, prepare, boil, simmer, lemon tek, take a trip dose, forage, store, buy and use amanita muscaria here. In addition, amanita muscaria helps with anxiety and panic attack healing.
Have you ever listened to Nordic music and wished you could see it live? Ever watched video of tribal dancing around a fire, odd and angry faces, that deep pulsing primal feeling and wished you could be a part of it? Ever wanted to walk with ancient elders and learn how to hear their wisdom? Ever wanted to use an ancient drug to trance out and see what our human ancestors have seen for thousands of years?
With the Amanita experience you can! Join Amanita Dreamer for an evening of an ancient ritualistic practice as she works to return this ceremony to the humans again. Most cultures and tribes have journeyed like this with this mushroom but the practice has all but been forgotten. Come learn how to bring it back by doing it once again.
This is not pagan or witchcraft or of any dogma or belief system. It is completely open to everyone with all beliefs and no belief system will be provided. We seek the mushroom elders and ourselves.
Please know that this is not a high dose healing ceremony. This is a community event. It involves us working in unison with drums, in a high energy event to bring healing and change to all in attendance, for community and for Earth. This is not personal healing or time for you to go inward.
These events are NOT for those who are experiencing mental health issues. It can cause instability. Those who attend need to microdose amanita before attending to know how it affects you. If you have issues with bipolar phases of depression and mania or schizoaffective issues, do not use this mushroom. Please heed these warnings.
I spent about a decade studying pre historic cro magnon man and homo sapiens and their history, tools, lives and ceremonies. Then recently, studies on genetics of the Sami people, the genetics of the amanita, theories of the amanita's emergence and talking to researchers etc to put together a picture of what I believe are the ancient ceremonies. The mushroom voice itself is what told me to look into that and to bring that back so that's what I have been doing. This is not a high dose quiet in the dark trip ceremony. It's a rukus. We summon the ancestors and elders, visit the underworld, move dark energy, move love and time travel. There's less intention and inner stillness and more community level work.
My advice is to study prehistory and those primates who preceded us if you want something accurate, not modern shamanism that's been co-opted by white people. I also advise not to culturally appropriate entheogenic culture and ritual. Perhaps learn your own genetics and ancestors and work within that. Mine is 80% nordic and I work within the Viking/nordic ancestry. What I do is a result of past research combined with the past 3 years of study of the amanita and Nordic history and traditions, all brought together in the ceremonies that I do.
